For the next couple of months we are going to be visiting coffee shops and checking out their Christmas drinks.
The Bullet Coffeehouse
With November being a bit colder than we were expecting and after receiving a bunch more snow than we were expecting and while we prepare for Christmas celebrations it’s important to take time to reflect on the moments that matter, in the past and in the present. Why not take a moment to rest, reflect, and enjoy the new Christmas drinks at The Bullet Coffeehouse?
They had several choices on the email that they sent out, so on Sunday we headed over to Bullet to check things out. Creating a new drink takes experimentation, trial and error, and a new coffee drink requires an idea, quite a bit of research, and just a little luck.
Here is a list of what The Bullet Coffeehouse are offering this holiday season: Black Forest Mocha, the Warm Your Soul Mocha, Peppermint Mocha and the Winter Snowball Latte.
My daughter and myself decided to try two of their holiday drinks, my daughter chose the Black Forest Mocha and I went with the Warm Your Soul Mocha.
The Warm Your Soul Mocha (a spicy mocha) is warm, frothy and had just the right amount of spice. This drink has a combination of cayenne and chili pepper in a mocha. After the initial first taste, this drink really catches you off guard, and once the drink gets mixed up a bit, then the flavors actually work well together. The taste of this beverage is unlike anything you’ve ever tasted before. This drink really speaks to your senses.
The Black Forest Mocha is just like the cake less the actual cherries. This drink actually tastes more like chocolate cake than a Black Forest cake. It was. missing a hint of cherry flavoring. We were talking with the owners daughter on shift and she explained how the drinks were made. She then made us a small version and still noticed that the espresso was still over powering the cherry syrup. This is a drink they need to play around with the ingredients to make this one work. Overall the drink had good flavor but lacked as I mentioned earlier in the cherry flavoring.
With everyone being pulled in a hundred different directions during this upcoming Christmas season. Give yourself the chance to pause. Enjoy an expertly roasted and prepared cup of coffee and think about the memories you’re building now. Breathe in the winter air, give thanks and find peace wherever you are in life.
